report is the romney campaign is right now sort of riding a wave of momentum, some recent polls, not just nationally but across several swing states have shown romney gaining some traction and getting very close to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hit a bit of a roadblock. one of his top surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that colin powell was endorsing the president because of his race. sununu put out a statement saying he believes powell endorsed the president because of his policies. it's not just the tough talk on the campaign trail that we're seeing that is causing things to get a little rocky out here. there is also the prospec
-- agrees with those comments. polls tell us that the president has been losing ground to romney among women. why is that? >> some of it is rebalancing, some of it is the effect of the first debate. i think that is this still falls along does have an effect. not because mr. mourdock said anything -- he was inartful. it was obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rate is much less important than preserving a life in a lot of women, saying that rape is not that important is a very unfortunate thing, and romney has disagreed with them, but he has not taken back the ad he is running for mourdock. >> every time he looked on the cable news shows now, you see somebody from planned parenthood or another group that is pro abortion, so forth. the obama people are running with this trade will have -- the of what people are running with this. will it have legs? >> it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, for abortion in case of rape or anything else. principled position give
are here in battleground florida, where the presidential polls show mitt romney and barack obama running in a statistical dead heat. so for the campaigns, it's now all about the ground game. they're trying to get their supporters to the polls and get them there early. today is the first day of in-person early voting here in the sunshine state. no shortage of organizations working to get people to vote as soon as they can here. earlier today, i had a chance to talk with a few of the folks who decided to cast their ballots on this first day of voting. >> i work, and i don't want to be in all of the waiting and the lines and everything. >> i was with my mom, and she decided to go early, and i wanted to vote so, i went with her. >> i think i'm working election day. so i figured i'd come out a little early, get it done now. >> we'll have much more on the impact of early voting coming up here in just a few moments. >>> first, though, the very latest on hurricane sandy. we'll get to the hurricane in just a moment, though. let's go to the political headlines. we'll come back to hurricane sandy i
trail regarding the 2012 race for the white house. according to the latest polling data the romney surge is continuing nationally and in swing states across america. let's begin with the gallup survey showing that once again, governor romney is leading the president by a comfortable margin. 51 to 46%. that number is reflected in the daily ra rasmussen tracking po. also from rasmussen romney has a four-point advantage 50 to 46 in the key wing states. here with reaction author of the price of politics bob woodward is with us. before we get to the polls, bob, i wanted to ask you in light of reading your book cover to cover and he really enjoyed it. >> thank you. >> sean: and i have not enjoyed all your books by the way, some are pretty tough on people i like. in all seriousness in light of what you concluded with the president on economic issues and the grand bargain and opportunity missed. here we have this father at the top of the show tonight telling this story, we learnd that they requested help, americans under fire they were denied these requests. guy had to literally go against order
the problem worse. >> greta: wisconsin is in play. the latest poll showing governor romney closing the gap. he is is now tied with president obama be. each of them with 49% of wisconsin's likely voters. the national polls painting an even grimmer picture for the president. this poll showing governor romney ahead by three. the governor with 50% of the vote and president obama with 47%. dick morris joins us. good evening, dick. >> good. i heard a great joke yesterday. if obama is reelected imagine the mess he will inherit. >> okay. i'm sure that the obama campaign will like that but the romney cam -- won't like that but the romney camp will enjoy that a bit. looking at the polls tonight, wisconsin in four years ago, president obama stormed the state by 14 points. this does seem to be a seismic shift in the state. >> there is. wisconsin has become a republican state by virtue of the incredibly intense organizational efforts there of governor scott walker's people, americans for prosperity and various other political groups that have really mobilized the free market forces in the state. they have
. president obama losing his lock on cheese country. a new poll shows the president and governor romney tied in wisconsin. is this a sign voters in the midwest are shifting stu port to governor romney budget any? >> wisconsin. this is important now. wisconsin 49-49 and you go back to 2008, obama carried wisconsin 56-42. >> something big is happening in wisconsin and there is stuff happening in oregon and stuff happening in iowa and there is stuff happening in iowa, ohio. and there is stuff happening in north carolina. there is stuff happening all over the place and the obama regime is looking smaller and smaller and smaller as they react to it. >> we have created 5.2 million jobs over 32 months. what is mitt romney's plan? he has is no plan. that is what the american people should be focused on. >> this is a huge election and we can't afford four more years of this and we have a big choice in front of us. go on with the broken promises not just on the economy but on the deficit and on social security and medicare. >> and the president's bigger promise to unit us instead of dividing us. gover
was and what could have been. >> reporter: a new poll shows that 59% of obama voters and 58% of romney voters are very enthusiastic. but the abc news/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman,
do the swing state sprint. polls tighten amid a new narrative mitt romney's momentum may not be real. and the president taking credit for positive economic aiders. and what will january's looming tax increases do to those signs of life? and a measure on the ballot in michigan could hand unions their biggest victory in years. will they make collective bargaining a constitutional right? >> welcome to "the journal editorial report." wifeless than two weeks to go, president obama and mitt romney hit the campaign trail in florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, and virginia. polls continue to show the race in a dead heat nationally, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowin
romney is ahead even more. poll tracker shows that romney is up and it really pains me to say this but he is up by six points among independents. but stay with me here is the good news, a new batch of swing state polls shows in the battleground states the president is gaining ground. let's take a look at today's swing state showdown for the latest. according to today's poll tracker average, the president holds the lead in seven of nine swing states. mitt romney is just ahead in two of them. we'll take a look at l thesewo mittttomomy y atat firsrs florida and north carolina. in north carolina mitt romney has a 2-point lead. this is again today's polls. he is also ahead in florida, but by actually less than a point. as for the president, he is ahead in these seven swing states but extremely small margins. as you can see, no more than three points in any of these states, all within the margin of error, but the momentum actually seems to be moving in the president's direction. let's take a look at virginia. we're seeing a trend there that is interesting, and pl
men. in a "washington post" poll, mitt romney held a 2-to-1 advantage over the president with white men. it's a delicate issue full of nuance unless you're romney surrogate and former governor of new hampshire john sunuunuu. >> we have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issue or if he has a slightly different reason he prefers president obama. when you have someone in your own race you're proud of being president of the united states i applaud cool inpowell for voting for him. >> eliot: did john sununu say that over the line. that is criticized in a way that's bad or simply making an observation that says, hey racial pride is a legitimate thing so colin powell go ahead and go for it. >> i think he was out of line. having him change his position flip flop just hours after the statement tells you right there that he was out of line and it's offensive to a decorated general of this country. but i think it understand lines a deeper tone in this republican party, and the whole race this year. i think it underlines a tone particularly latinos. you look at a party that has veered
is poll guru david schusser. am i right even though it's fun to see romney is up three or dodown three all that matters is ohio iowa, wisconsin those are the only ones we have to drill down on. >> that's right. to award romney all of his states and left with three or four percentage points with the battleground states. with the battleground states president obama all he needs to do to get to the 270 electoral votes that he needs to win if he wins nevada, and you have a top republican saying nevada is going with obama. wins wisconsin which has the president up two or three points. then you add iowa or new hampshire which the polls may an slight obama lead but even if romney runs the table and gets every state that currently has it as a dead heat, florida, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, as long as president obama still holds on to ohio, nevada and wisconsin no matter what the national pop lay vote, the president gets 271 and he wins. >> eliot: if i hear you properly what is going on here, even though the national polls are saying this thing is closing up, mitt romney is making this thing an
"philadelphia inquirer" poll has the president up by a sizable margin. governor romney has narrowed the lead to six points there. 49-43 in pennsylvania. mitt romney's running mate is on the about us hoeding across ohio. congressman paul ryan on a two-day eight-stop trip through the critical battleground state calling on voters to support the republican ticket. nbc news correspondent ron mott on the bus with the vp nominee. i understand you just arrived in circleville, ohio? >> reporter: we are behind schedule by about 40 minutes, i would say. paul ryan just finished up a quick brief address with supporters outside lindsey's bakery. i'm told it's world famous. they've got pumpkin donuts they put on the bus here. we have two more events in about 120 or so miles left to go. this is a must-win for the campaign. that's the way they're positioning it. ohio senator rob portman said he can't see this republican ticket winning the white house without winning here in ohio. no republican has ever done that. stakes are high here clearly. as you mentioned, governor romney is going to be here tomorrow. ha
's a matter of seeing who has the better ground game to get voters to the polls. >> romney and ryan, are they going to be campaigning together tomorrow in ohio? >> they will. they've got three stops across the state tomorrow on the bus. we expect that the crowds will probably are getting in fair notice the governor will be here, as well. we'll see bigger crowds than we would have otherwise. >> ron mott on the bus with congressman paul ryan in ohio. thank you, sir. do appreciate that. democrats are relying on women voters to help propel president obama to a second term. governor romney surging. he's nearly even with the president among registered female voters, a number that puts the proposed gender gap into question here. let's bring in our panel. beth, lynn, good afternoon to both of you. beth, let me show you one more number from your poll if i could put it up. president obama's 16-point lead with women on the economy. now a four-point disadvantage. how worried should democrats be? >> very worried. if this is actually going to bear out, it's a disaster for the democratic ticket. p
we talk about eroding numbers. polls have shown mitt romney has basically neutralized the advantage president obama enjoyed back in 2008. do you think we'll see that? will that be reflective on election day? amy. >> if i could jump in, yes. i don't believe the poll that show shows that mitt romney has closed that gender gap. it shows that mitt romney is up with men, but you do see the female vote eroding for president obama. if you look at the election results, in 2008, president obama was up 13 points among women, but by the mid-term, women were voting evenly between the gop and democrats, and as we discussed on this show many times, the female vote is not monolithic. if you look it a by age group, older, married women are more likely to vote for the gop. >> maria, let's get back to the impact of the latino vote. it may not be getting accurate attention. how much bigger do you think it's really going to be than what is projected? >> i think quite a bit bigger. in fact, what we're seeing is that latinos are going to come out in record numbers this year. in every poll that we have se
/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday, governor romney is doing well among independent voters so it makes sense they would be talking about that advantage right now. at the same time, there are signs that yes, the romney campaign is concerned about this state and talking a little bit about what john king was mentioning a few moments ago about the auto bailout, we heard one of romney's top surrogates, rob portman, defend mitt romney's stance on the auto bailout. he of course opposed the auto bailout and then last night at a late night event in defiance, ohio, mitt romney passed along a story that ended up being debunked. he said chrysler was thinking about moving its jeep operations to china. that was despite the fact that chrysler had come out with a statement on its website saying no, that is not the case, they are not moving its operations of jeep over to china. so it is a sign that yes, they are concerned about that position on the auto bailout and he is getting pounded relentlessly on the airwaves with obama campaign ads talking about that very stance. >> brianna, you say the obama ca
, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have been concerned that the perceived lack of their candidate's competitiveness could ultimately lead to less enthusiasm and therefore, a lower turnout. so the message being emphasized to the gop base is that romney can win. than makes the message from obama strategists all the more interesting. in order to increase democratic enthusiasm and turnout, they have the very same message. romney can win this. a new obama ad is basically trying to frighten democrats into making sure they vote. reminding them of the disputed 2000 election. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. >> reporter: a new poll shows that 59% of obama voters and 58% of romney voters are very enthusiastic. but the abc news/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's,
again, paul. >> where do you think this race stands right now? is romney surging as much as the polls appear to make it seem? >> yeah. i think romney is ahead in the race in the national race. i think he is within striking distance of the 270 eelectoral votes he needs, and the areas of the country where he made the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with
. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it
polls and other pundits that have spoken of a shift in ohio going in favor of mitt romney, momentum is not reflected in the new cnn poll. it is where it was a couple weeks ago. president obama hangs on to ohio and many believe he will hang on and be re-elected to a second term. this is not by a lack of trying by both candidates to win over last-minute votes and they are doing it to spend an incredible amount of money. $177 million buying television time, much of that money spent right here in northern ohio. we should point out in the cleveland market in 2008, total campaign ads, television time, $36 million. in 2010, it was up to $44 million spent. so far, we are at $88 million in cleveland alone. some say it's closer to $97 million and we've still got a way to go. 400% increase over two2008. the cost of a commercial in the 6:00 news is up over 400% in this market. i'll leave you with one other fascinating fanth. if you took all the political commercials that ran in the cleveland market since the beginning of october and ran them back-to-back you'd sit down and watch them for four a
at where the president and governor romney stand in those polls. >>> all week long we've had a news crew crisscrossing the state of virginia taking the polls of voters in the key battle grounds. the latest poll out just today shows romney with a slight lead there. he's got 50% support compared to president obama's 48%. tonight andrea mccarren wraps up our battle ground virginia coverage closer to home in loudoun county. >> reporter: loudoun is the wealthiest county in the nation in terms of its household income. and political scientists say the candidate who wins a critical vote here and in similar battle grounds wins the election. and that is the so-called panera mom. >> really? oh, my gosh. i'm surprised that we're the ones who would be deciding. >> reporter: the panera mom is educated, has children and is worried about the economy. and you can find her across northern virginia. >> i think a lot of women are looking for humanitarian issues and abortion rights and things like that. but i personally am looking for more business issues in this economy. >> reporter: they're women like virg
of independents like mitt romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this pth. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters passed. >> college graduates should not have to live out their 20's and their child to bed rooms staring out at fading obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. gerri: doesn't that crystallize the problem for young voters? >> sure when you have 15 percent unemployment in you hve 50 percent of them who cannot find jobs once they graduate. staying on the counter. the problem is, though, you still have the recent poll, a harvard poll has obama leading men romney by 90 percentage points in that age demographic and 18-29. these are your classic case obama's zombies. barack obama, is campaigning in his actual policies are going to make it a lot harder for young people to find jobs and pay up this e
the candidates in the latest gallup poll. it shows governor romney ahead of the president 51% to 46%. a "washington post" poll shows the race tighter than that. it has romney up by a single point, 49% to 48%. but schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and, bob, what do you make of these numbers? >> well, scott, i spent a good part of today with the two most respected political analysts in the country, charlie cook and stu rothenberg. their publications are the bibles for political reporters. here is what they told me in separate interviews. for the first time that either of them can remember this deep in a campaign, they have no idea who is going to win. both of them say the race is so close there is a real possibility now that romney could win the popular vote and the president the electoral college vote. cook told me he had this race figured out he thought five days ago. he saw obama as the slight favorite, now he says "i'm perplexed, i just don't know." rothenberg feels much the same. the words he uses are "feeling flummoxed." he says ther
's say we give it to mitt romney. it's only a three-point lead in our poll, 50-47. colorado, romney picks up. he may be the slight favorite there anyway. florida, virginia, now we are at 263 for romney. pick up iowa where it's very close and romney is at 269. if we give the president new hampshire where he's favored, wisconsin where he's favored, and even ohio with that auto balout, look at where we stand, 269-269. then the decision goes to congress. back to you, craig. oh, my goodness. we can't get enough of that map, thank you so much. i think what we've gleaned from all this, it could be a very long night on tuesday going into wednesday morning. coming up, up and down the east coast, everyone is keeping a close eye on hurricane sandy. how the storm could impact early voting in key swing states. >> i'm very keen on protecting her privacy. she can make her own decisions later. i've been coloring liz's hair for years. but lately she's been coming in with less gray than usual. what's she up to? [ female announcer ] root touch-up by nice'n easy has the most shade choices, designed to match
of the romney momentum, you're not seeing a lot of polls that flip to his advantage in ohio. and women voters, for example, we've seen that nationally really close, that edge that president obama had all year with women voters after the first debate, national polls show that receding or even slipping away entirely. however, in ohio it has remained a pretty strong edge for president obama. his advisers told politico yesterday double-digit edge in ohio and some other battle ground states. so they feel good about those numbers. they're emphasizing how many more field offices they have out in ohio, mitt romney using that as an argument to say they're really target particular precincts. they can be on the ground in particular neighborhoods. both getting out their voters, voters who have voted in the past, attracting new voters, and hopefully for them whipping some of those undecided voters, there aren't that many out there left but there are a few. >> ladies, thank you both for weighing in. susan i'm glad we got your ear back in. we needed that. thank you both. >>> so rid el me. this what do richa
polled says the economy and jobs is the number one issue to americans. that in mind, let's take a look at the two candidate, what they're doing today. governor romney has been delivering a major economic address to voters in iowa. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment. that can bring america's family to certainty, that the future will be better than the past. >> eric: president obama on the other hand, has a different agenda. today he is hanging out with mtv. look, it doesn't matter what you think of romney. what matters is this. do you really want four more years of obamanomics? check out the latest poll from abc/"washington post." when asked who do you trust more to hand the economy? romney 45 #%. president obama 43%. nine-point difference is huge. we have 11 days to decide who will lead the great republic out of the economic slump or in. ask yourself do i want to guy with job creation all over his resume, or the guy who spends his time with leno, letterman, jon stew
